"Our purpose is broader in concept and reaches beyond Viet Nam in time and space," Dr. Etsendrath said. "But we will not evade its immediacy and urgency." WASHINGTON (DPI) -- An Asian expert told the Senate Foreign Relations committee Thursday that Communist China should be brought into the United Nations "even if they claim they are' going to dynamite the place the minute they get in." Dr. John F. Fairbank of Harvard -University put the Red Chinese on the psychiatrist's couch and diagnosed · Dr. Greeley said "the par- their aggressiveness as partly Eisendrath; president of the hope that consideration of the Union of American Hebrew Viet Nam conflict/will be only Congregations.

O t h e r w i s e , the wider objective might be hindered, he said, adding: 'The whole problem boils down to this: We never get chance to build sufficient long-range general will for peace because meetings bog down on particular cases." * * · » THE CONFERENCE will focus on three major themes, on which background studies have been prepared. They are: "The Changing Communist World" -- appraising western relations to evolving Communist patterns; "Communist China and Conflicts In Asia," and "Forms of .Intervention, Moral Responsibilities and mental--based on many frus trations. The fact that they are isolated from the world, largely because of U.S. policy over the last 17 years, just "inten sifies their ailment and makes it self-perpetuating," he said gious leaders and men that we believe the ultimate aims in our world today are moral and spiritual, and cannot be won or maintained by military or coercive" m e a n s alone." HE SAID that "inertia or complacency on the part of our people" has always been an obstacle, as has the "chauvinism that sees any "peace" e f f o r t as C o m m u n i s t inspired." In this attitude, he said, "fear replaces faith." However, he added, "We ilishing peace, ihbishpp lakovos, Limits"--dealing with moral justifications for U.S. intervention abroad. Archbishop lakovos noted that the two latter categories likely will include the U.S. role in Viet Nam. He added: 'President Johnson's FAIRBANK, director o Harvard's East Asian Re search Center, suggested tha a possible cure in the interest of avoiding a future collision with the Communist Chines is to make them a more ac live part of the world commu nity. This placed him solidly 1 line with the position advo cated by Columbia Universit professor A. Doak Barnet opening witness Tuesday i the committee's study of U.f policy toward Peking. As for the Vietnamese Wa Fairbank said Red Chin showed no serious desires military aggression beyond i orders but was determined defend itself and would ;ht against any threat to its oundary. * THEREFORE, he said, ha ould not endorse the bomb- ig of Hanoi or Haiphong in orth Viet Nam. Fairbank ran into intensive uestioning from committee members critical of President ohnson's policy after he de- lared that the United States uist remain in Viet Nam be ause the "alternative is worse than the present pros ect." "Withdrawing now has the rospect of warfare greate than we have now," he sale "I'm' not eager to disasso- ,iate myself with the admin stration policy but did no come here to underwrite it, 1 IB said. "I accept it as a fact. * * * * FAIRBANK reviewed a ength the history of China' 'frustrations." He said tha 'actually the problems they! face and the methods they use are in large part Inherited From Chinese history." He also declared that the United States should not get too excited over Peking's "vast blueprints" to spread their revolution elsewhere In the world. Throughout history, he said, the Chinese have at- proclaiming their superiority. "In the course of time Peking should see a resurgence of the more humanistic and bureaucratic tradition of gov eminent by well-cducaled administrators who keep society!) in balance," he said. "While]] the past is gone forever, the present is not permanent either. Eventually we may expect the Chinese revolution toj] nellow down a bit."
